Several times in the Tabernacle
sermon yesterday afternoon the au
ditors might well have made the
classical observation, "Them's harsh
words. Bill," but "Billy" laughed
when he said the words and took the
sting out and left the thrill.
"When the committee asked me to
come here," said "Billy," "they said,
Mr. Sunday, you'll find we are all
together in Omaha.' I did. I found
you were froien . together. You're
thawing out, but you're about the
Blowest at thawing that I've struck
It was a sermon of the militant re-
igion and "Billy" flung defiance In
the teeth of the enemies of nls God.
"No man can "knock' Christ and God
and the church while I'm around," he
chuckled grimly, "not without a scrap.
If they'd ay some of the things to me
that they say without rebuke to some
church members, I'd give the dentlBt a
Job. Oh, yes, I would. It you don't be
lieve It. try it."
Who says "Billy's" proud of 'Billy"
Sunday and his ability a a preacher?
Here's what he said yesterday:
I see Plain Words.
"I'm doing; my best for God. There are
thousands of preachers that can preach
better than I can. But I'm doing my
very baat,'t -
Speailng of his language, he said he
uses words and expressions that the com
mon people can understand: '
"If I say an apple 1 disintegrating by
the formation of. hew chemical com
pounds' not many would know what I
was talking about. But if I say if a 'rot
ten' everybody understands.
"Some folks are so proud of their col

In the Industrial plan submitted by
